Jules is recognised for his expertise on contracts and disputes for both public and private sector clients. He is particularly skilled in drafting and negotiating building contracts, particularly the JCT and NEC forms for a wide range of projects, from a basement swimming pool for a luxury house in London, to new leisure facilities for a Council. Jules also advises on all forms of dispute resolution, including adjudication, litigation, arbitration, expert determination and mediation. He acts for developers, contractors, subcontractors, consultants and funders.

Jules has developed particular experience in the energy sector, and is part of the Renewables, Energy & Resources Group. He has drafted and negotiated EPC and EPCM contracts, and is familiar with both FIDIC and IChemE forms of contract.

In Chambers Guide to the Legal Profession Jules is noted as being “extremely thorough, knowledgeable and approachable with a very good and deep understanding of construction law.”

In their words

"I aim to give clients clear and concise legal advice focusing on being pragmatic and keeping things simple. It is rewarding developing long term relationships with clients and seeing projects through from conception to completion. In relation to disputes, helping the client make the right strategic and tactical decisions keeps the job interesting."
